Butlers Chocolate Cafe- Dublin, Ireland
Dublin is far away from being known as a warm and sunny city, but Butlers Chocolate Cafe comes to save the day by providing an extremely long and delicious menu of different hot chocolate flavors. There are more than ten flavors of hot chocolate at Butlers; who even knew that was possible? When you walk in and smell the delicious chocolatey aroma that Butlers Cafe gives off, you will have the opportunity to pick between milk chocolate, white chocolate, dark chocolate, praline, chili, almond, peppermint, coconut, marshmallow, and more. If you are in Dublin, you should absolutely not miss the opportunity to stop by Butlers for a cup of hot chocolate… even if it does happen to be warm and sunny on that particular day.
Mindy’s Hot Chocolate- Chicago, Illinois
Mindy Segal’s restaurant and dessert spot, Mindy’s Hot Chocolate, is located in the popular Wicker Park neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois and is a spot that you should not even dream of missing while you are trying to combat the frigid lake effect coldness that Chicago offers its citizens and visitors each winter season. Despite the fact that Mindy’s does carry a fully-stocked breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu, it’s definitely the hot chocolate that we recommend going there for. If you are someone who is afraid of the cold or simply can’t make it to the Windy City anytime soon? Don’t worry- you can order Mindy’s Hot Chocolate mix from their website- marshmallows included!
Koko Monk, Vancouver, British Columbia
If you are looking for a plain and boring cup of hot chocolate, you can find that somewhere else. Koko Monk offers exotic flavors of chocolates that are much more delicious than you would ever expect, such as parsnip, ghost pepper, watermelon, and balsamic vinegar. The good news for an adventurous person is that the cups of hot chocolate are no different or less exotic. We recommend you try the Harem a la Turc hot chocolate; it will make you dream of drinking a Turkish coffee with flavors of dark Belgian chocolate, cognac, and caramel. Talk about yum.
